Cut from a tree at work. Used a microwave transformer to burn a fractal pattern above the crack in the middle, and then filled both with turquoise. I wanted it to look like a tree coming out of the ground. Finished with Sam Maloof oil/poly. First time doing any fractal burns or inlay work so it’s not perfect, definitely learned from this though.

Missed this the first time around – that mimosa is beautiful wood. Is it a hard wood or soft wood?

It’s definitely a soft wood. And unfortunately reacts horribly to environmental changes. Lots of new cracks after it was cut from the log.

Have your say...
